The Traverse Pro are ski poles designed for long walks in the backcountry and deep powder fill runs but can thrive in the resort as well. The simple adjustability allows you to be comfortable on both the uphill and downhill and special straps have your back during a surprise tumble.

Great lightweight touring poles

The grips are comfortable, the locking mechanism works well, and they are almost as light as my pair of 6 year old carbon poles.

Lost baskets....

I couldn’t figure out from the directions how exactly I should put the baskets on. I guessed and thought I had done it correctly but lost both of the baskets on my first tour.

Good quality

These live up to the BD quality standard, but I was surprised by the length of the two piece pole. They are likely way too long to safely pack while split boarding which is what I bought them for. It’s too bad BD doesn’t make a 3 piece 155cm pole. The photo is how the fit in my avy bag fully collapsed. They will likely work for back country skiers just fine but too long for splitboarders.

Excellent ski poles with versatility

I have really enjoyed these poles for skiing. I like being able to quickly adjust to length depending on the type of run I am skiing. Experts would say the correct length for poles for me would be 125 cm. But I shorten the poles to about 117-119 cm for groomers so the poles don't drag as well as it forces me to bend my knees more. Then I can quickly lengthen the poles to 128-130 cm for steep narrow chutes that require pole plants for effective jump turns. These poles are light weight, sturdy, and versatile. Great product at a reasonable price.

Perfect for my needs

I was looking for replacement to my 15 y/o 3 section adjustable poles. I debated a fair amount about 2 vs 3 section poles and whether I wanted/needed a whippet ready pole. Decided on the Traverse Pro as I use them primarily for ski patrol duties. After a few weeks of use, the poles work as expected. Easy to adjust with the Flicklock which stays put once set. The SwitchRelease released once - when I was using skis and poles to mark the scene of an incident. Minor opportunity is that the webbing of the hand straps “feels” like low quality material. Obviously it does not hamper function. I am 5’10” and purchased the 145 length pole.

Disappointed

I am disappointed with these poles, as well how the company handled my situation. The lower shaft of one of my poles fell out one day while skiing inbounds. I did not feel like I was doing anything extreme - I believe my gear failed me. When I took my pole into a storefront, they just told me to buy a replacement part. Not only this, but the replacement part was sold out. They did not offer me any other solutions and left me without a ski pole for the season. I went on to buy new poles and made sure they were not Black Diamond brand this time around, as I do not believe the customer support and warranty is worth the high price I paid for the product.
